Brandy Egg Nog
This recipes is an easy to make at home version of the classic Brandy/egg nog holiday beverage. It’s kind of a cool trick at holiday parties to make fresh egg nog from scratch.
Be warned; those of you that are paranoid, hysterical and stupid: this recipe uses a raw egg yolk (EEEEK! HEAVENS TO BETSY!) Many people have been corrupted by silly salmonella fears over the years so if you suffer from such idiocy, just buy store egg nog and pour brandy in it.
I suggest making this a few times and adjusting both the sugar and brandy levels to suit your tastes. Some people like this stronger (add brandy) and more sweet (add sugar), some people find it to be too sweet as prepared (use less sugar)
1 ½ ounces brandy
1 egg yolk
3 ½ ounces milk
¾ ounces heavy cream
2 teaspoons powdered sugar
1. Fill the shaker with ice and all ingredients.
2. Shake and serve over ice.
